*** Also, when Scotty steps down as chief engineer, Kirk tells Chekov to put on a RedShirt (i.e. [[YouAreInCommandNow making him the chief engineer]]), to which Chekov looks in terror [[MythologyGag as an allusion to the Red Shirt's fatality rate]]. That joke sure doesn't seem very funny after Creator/AntonYelchin died in a car accident in June 2016, shortly before the release of the next film, ''Film/StarTrekBeyond''.

** The epic scene of Harry rampaging through a melee at an American church is a little harder to watch after [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charleston_church_shooting the shooting at a Charleston, S.C. church in June of 2015]]. But only a little.

** Postlethwaite's final film was a film called ''Killing Bono'', which as you may have guessed is about people trying to kill the lead singer of {{U2}}. Though Postlethwaite's death wasn't a murder, it's still somewhat harsh that his final film was one about death.

* TheLongestRide features a scene where Britt Robertson's character is about to start a new job only to be interrupted by her boyfriend being injured in an accident. Less than a year after the film's release, Robertson had just signed onto a new role when her boyfriend Dylan O'Brien was injured during a filming accident on the set of the latest TheMazeRunner movie.

* Seeing Creator/ShaileneWoodley having to [[spoiler:say goodbye to Ansel Elgort as he dies from cancer]] in ''Film/TheFaultInOurStars'' will become even sadder when ''Film/TheDivergentSeriesAscendant'' which features boths actors is released. [[spoiler:This time it's Woodley who will be dying]].

* Its sequel ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' has quite a few:
** In-universe, Nick Fury's memory of how Alexander Pierce turned down a Nobel Peace Prize by saying that "peace isn't a reward, it's a responsibility." The problem is that Pierce's idea of peace is one [[spoiler:enforced by HYDRA]].
** TheReveal of Sitwell and Senator Stern as [[spoiler:HYDRA agents]]. If the first name hasn't been a blow enough, the mere fact that the latter ''wanted'' to confiscate Tony's suit in ''Film/IronMan2'' for the U.S. military is quite a guise for [[spoiler:HYDRA control]]. Making it worse, the U.S. military's immediate action when Colonel Rhodes did acquire Tony's spare suit was to ''weaponize'' it in the name of patriotism. The HYDRA reveal gets even worse with the first issue of ''Captain America: Steve Rogers'' revealing [[spoiler: that Steve himself is with HYDRA and Marvel [[http://www.ew.com/article/2016/05/25/captain-america-villain-hydra-nick-spencer-tom-brevoort confirming]] that he always has been and it's the real Steve acting on his own free will.]]
** Sam mentions that his wingman was shot down by an RPG during a late-night mission. That's pretty tragic, until you see what his flying gear looks like, and then you realize that he had to watch his best friend get shot [[NightmareFuel point-blank with an RPG...]]
** In ''The Avengers'', Tony comments that "In a few hours, I'll know every dirty secret S.H.I.E.L.D has ever tried to hide." [[spoiler:With the reveal that HYDRA was using S.H.I.E.L.D. as a front and had been manipulating it, Tony either FailedASpotCheck--''or'' HYDRA put failsafes in place in case Tony tried such a move. Or there was simply so much information that he had no way of sifting through all of it to pick out the discrepancies.]]
** In the 1998 Nick Fury movie, when [[spoiler:Alexander Pierce]] makes a mistake during a mission, Fury says that he is [[spoiler:either a traitor or an idiot]]. While [[spoiler:Pierce]] from that movie [[spoiler:wasn't a traitor]], the one in this movie is.
** When Steve [[spoiler:wakes in a hospital bed at the end of the film, this is the second time he's found himself in a similar situation after falling into water from a great height expecting to die. The first time this happened, he found the era-appropriate room was a lie and that he had actually been asleep for 67 years. If he hadn't seen Sam there with Music/MarvinGaye's "Trouble Man"--a soundtrack from an era he missed--it wouldn't have been pretty.]]
** In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', Loki insulted [[ComicBook/BlackWidow Natasha]] because she works for the service of liars and killers. [[spoiler:It's ambiguous whether he referred to the [[UsefulNotes/MoscowCentre KGB]] (Natasha's previous employer) or S.H.I.E.L.D. If he was referring to S.H.I.E.L.D., then [[VillainHasAPoint he turns out to be right]], since HYDRA-infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. are indeed trained manipulators and assassins.]]
** An out-of-universe example: ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' did not get BackedByThePentagon because of concerns about the fact that S.H.I.E.L.D. was subordinate to the World Security Council, an entity that almost nothing was known about, and so the Pentagon wanted nothing to do with the movie. Come this film, [[spoiler:those concerns were proven absolutely right as S.H.I.E.L.D. is revealed to be basically a reborn HYDRA.]]
** Senator Stern is left alive at the film's end, possibly to lead into a role in future MCU projects which will now go unfulfilled after Garry Shandling's untimely death (in fact, this film was his final acting role).
* ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'':
** May 6-7, 2016 were not good days for [[spoiler: ComicBook/WarMachine]] in any medium. The former saw the release of ''Civil War'', which [[spoiler: saw he crippled following a stray blast from ComicBook/TheVision damaging his armor]] and the latter saw the release of the Free Comic Book Day special that kick starts ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'' [[spoiler: with his death by ComicBook/{{Thanos}} being what set things off.]]
** [[spoiler: A major scene of the film is Peggy Carter's funeral. In the week following the film's theatrical released, news got out that ''Series/AgentCarter'' was cancelled.]]

* The 1997 TV movie ''Murder Live!'' concerns a man taking a talk show hostage because the hosts humiliated his daughter on the air and caused her to commit suicide. It becomes harder to watch these days with the rise of social media and stories of people killing themselves over embarrassing incidents taped and gone public.
